Web Single Sign-on for Any J2EE Server

Gary Gwin writes "San Diego, CA, October 9, 2003 - Cafésoft announced today
that it is now shipping web single sign-on support for all J2EE
web and application servers. The new Cams Servlet Filter web agent
enables web single sign-on for J2EE servers such as BEA WebLogic,
IBM WebSphere, JBoss, JRun, Oracle 9iAS, and Tomcat. Cams is a secure,
flexible, and affordable web single sign-on software solution that
centralizes web application security decisions, enforcement, and

"Web single sign-on support for any J2EE server is only available
from Cafésoft," said Gary Gwin, Cafésoft president
and CEO. "Cams now provides web single sign-on for the world's
most popular commercial J2EE servers, such as BEA WebLogic and IBM
WebSphere, and open source J2EE servers, such as Tomcat and JBoss.
Using Cams enables you use the same security umbrella to protect
your J2EE servers as well as web servers like Apache and IIS."

Cams makes sites more secure and manageable by centralizing application
security decisions, enforcement, and management, rather than implementing
security for each web and application server. This centralized approach
to web security enables companies to reduce development and administration
complexity and costs, while improving time-to-market, security,
and user satisfaction for business enabling web projects. Cams also
provides web single sign-on to eliminate the costs, risks, and pains
associated with multiple user accounts and logins on the same site.

Cams service oriented architecture deploys into heterogeneous environments
and scales for high-volume sites. Cams provides user directory integration
with industry-standard LDAP and SQL databases, including Microsoft
Active Directory and SunOne Directory Server. Primary product features

  • Web single sign-on to web and J2EE application servers
  • Access control based on roles (RBAC), date/time, location, and
    custom rules
  • Simplified and centralized security policy administration
  • Security event logging, analysis, and real-time notification
  • Flexible customizations via open APIs
  • Cross-platform support including Windows NT/2000/2003, Linux/UNIX,
    and Solaris

"We created Cams to help developers implement web application
security without embedding security policy into application code,"
said Norbert Kuhnert, Cafésoft chief technology officer and
founder. "With Cams, environments like J2EE servers and web
servers share the same security environment. An open programmer's
API empowers developers to use any password database for authentication,
create custom access control rules that match business policy, and
trigger business processes from security events."

The Cams Servlet Filter web agent is available immediately for
all J2EE web and application servers that support Servlet API 2.3.
A free Cams Tour download is available on Cafésoft's web
site at http://www.cafesoft.com.
The Cams Tour is the best way to learn about Cams terminology, architecture,
and web application security. Cams software licenses are available
starting at $2,995 per server. Developer licenses are free. Evaluation
licenses, which include the Cams Servlet Filter web agent, are available
upon request.
